Welcome to Wikipedia, Mahamaya1. You sure know a lot about Professor Kripal! Let me know if you need any help. — goethean 22:28, 23 March 2006 (UTC)

reply to Goethean[edit]

I've never done this before. do I reply to you on my (this) section, or yours?

Usually, you reply on my page, and I reply on yours. That way, we are each alerted in turn to new messages. Some editors prefer to reply on their own talk page, however.
I created the Kripal article. The history of the article is available by hitting the "history" tab at the top of the article. Prior to my creation of the article, the text existed within the Ramakrishna article, which caused some conflict. — goethean 22:58, 23 March 2006 (UTC)
I forgot to mention -- you can (and should) sign your comments with four tildes: ~~~~. This makes the software insert your username after your comments.
I haven't read Kripal's book, although I would like to. (I haven't even read the Gospel of Ramakrishna!) So I don't have a strong opinion about him. I am an American interested in Hinduism, and although I can definitely appreciate the re-sexing aspect of the psychoanalytic interpretation, I can also appreciate that that is extremely offensive to lots of Indians, many of whom are quite Victorian. I try to maintain an integral approach to spirituality and religion that is neither dogmatic nor dismissive. — goethean 23:12, 23 March 2006 (UTC)
Thanks for the fascinating info on KC. Incidentally, I'm married to a Punjabi woman from New Delhi. — goethean 23:29, 23 March 2006 (UTC)


Hello again.

It's quite easy. The instructions are at Wikipedia:Footnotes. Please examine what I did on this page.[1]

Mahamaya, do you know anything about Esalen? The article will be deleted soon unless it is improved. see Talk:Esalen_Institute. — goethean 19:57, 10 April 2006 (UTC)
